VIDEO: 'Geese Tsunami' overtakes Richmond park

This is, apparently, known as a 'Geese Tsunami'.

That's according to YouTuber Maikel Parets, who uploaded the video above on Tuesday after filming a wave of geese descending upon a park in Richmond, B.C.

From the upload:

Snow geese taking a break from migration when suddenly...

Warning I got a little too excited and the volume got a little loud. Eye on the girl at the end checking for poop in her hair

The video has climbed to over 54,000 views already, in just over two days.

It should be noted, 2013 marks the 50th anniversary of Alfred Hitchcock's classic film The Birds. And while the area's picturesque Steveston wharf could remind someone of Bodega Bay, California already, this little scene is eery, too.

(Also, could the girl at the end "checking for poop in her hair" be Tippi Hedren?)
